Telltale Games has released their launch trailer just in time for the release of their next installment for their game series from the popular TV show and series of books ‘Game of Thrones.’
This installment, under the title ‘Episode 2: The Lost Lords,’ will be released within the next couple days depending upon the system. The game will be available on Feb 3rd for PS3, PS4, Mac/PC, and Steam, Feb 4th for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and Feb 5th for Android and iOS.
This will be the 2nd of six episodes, following up their 1st installment “Iron From Ice” released in December 2014. The games are told from the point of view of characters from House Forrester who interact with popular characters from the TV show, sharing not just their appearance but the voices from the actors themselves. The trailer and the description with it promises appearances from Margaery Tyrell, Tyrion Lannister, and Jon Snow.
According to Telltale’s website, their series takes places after the events of Season 3 in the show and will end before the beginning of Season 5, and feature both familiar characters and settings (such as the Wall and King’s Landing) as well as new ones (House Forrester and their home Ironrath). A point-and-click story-based game, Telltale offers a ‘tailored story’ for their players, meaning “the story changes around you based on the choices that you make. The reverberations from each choice may be felt immediately, later in an episode, or something may sneak up and surprise you much later in the series.”
In the meantime, anyone who wants to get caught up on the series still has another day or two to play Episode 1 before the release of “Lost Lords” – Telltale claims that each episode should only take about 2 hours to complete, so catching up won’t take too long.
